A professional rehabilitation center is the most reliable option available for helping addicts recover from a dependence on drugs or alcohol. Rehabilitation centers can help patients do much more than simply abstain from drugs and alcohol; they can provide them with the education they need to overcome the underlying problems that cause people to start using and abusing drugs to begin with. Trying to quit alone can leave addicts without the support and knowledge they need to quit drugs and alcohol and leave them to restart the cycle of addiction all over again.
The Riverbank House is a long-term addiction recovery retreat in New Hampshire. Riverbank House offers an innovative treatment plan incorporating programs to help addicts to grow mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. The Riverbank House’s program focuses on helping patients make positive, permanent changes in their lives. Riverbank House’s staff combines spiritual education with a number of practical applications and treatments to provide patients with the tools they need to succeed in society.
Challenges with Alcohol Addiction Recovery
Psychologists and medical professionals alike agree that substance abuse is rarely the only problem an addict needs to worry about. Substance abuse and addiction is often the result of much more serious issues such as past traumatic experiences, psychological problems, or mental disorders. Overcoming an addiction cannot be completed without first helping addicts to admit to and address the problems in their live that could cause them to continue their destructive behavior.
Addicts also face a other challenges, including a lack of support from friends and family as well as a lack of structure during the recovery process. Without a support system to encourage addicts during tough times, addicts are much more likely to relapse and continue their addictive behavior.
What Makes Riverbank House Effective?
At Riverbank House, we stress the need to develop a lifelong commitment to recovery. Without dedication to their sobriety, addicts will soon fall into their old patterns of dependence. Riverbank House’s treatment programs are based on the Twelve Steps used in Alcoholics Anonymous, which allows addicts the chance to confront different aspects of their addiction. Our community also places a large focus on adhering to the Twelve Principles of Buddhism, which teach patients how to create harmony within their surroundings. All patients are encouraged to participate in daily yoga and meditation sessions and adopt the community’s adherence to a spirit of non-aggression, collaboration, self-reflection, mutual respect, and accountability.

· Phase I: Foundation
Phase I of our recovery program is aimed at introducing patients to their treatment plan and encouraging them to start off on the right foot. An important part of Phase I is a goal-setting session in which patients write out short-term and long-term goals for the duration of their treatment. Patients also receive ample support by attending group sessions with other patients and participating in the first 3 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous’ Twelve Step Program.
· Phase II: Implementation
Phase II of treatment acts as a continuation of the foundations built in Phase I. Patients are still required to participate in Foundation Phase activities while attending additional Solo No More activities. Patients also take part in a series of career planning classes as well as classes about financial planning and life management. Phase II also begins steps 4-8 of the Twelve Step Program.
· Phase III: Vigilance
Phase III places a heavy emphasis on working with recovery coaches to monitor patients’ self-action and discuss their Relapse Prevention Plan. Patients will also begin work on steps 9-12 of the Twelve Step Program and attend advanced coaching sessions to evaluate their short-term and long-term goals.
· Phase IV: Transitional Living
Phase IV is centered on preparing patients to live a live free of substance abuse after their treatment program is completed. During Phase IV, patients are moved into Independent Living houses where they can implement what they’ve been taught during their stay at the rehabilitation center. Phase IV also stresses continued participation in local 12-step meetings for additional support from other recovering addicts.
